Take a Walk

I really enjoyed this article from NPR. I think that with everything we have going on (and I need to know this as well), we forget sometimes to step out and truly enjoy the amazing intricacy of the world around us. I did not grow up hiking, but once or twice a year, my dad would take us children to a small, electricity-free cabin in the woods, where we would go exploring and I loved seeing the different animals, terrain, and flora, and it was one of the best parts of my childhood. As an adult, I get nervous about things like deer ticks and black bears, but I need to put on my bug spray and sunscreen, don my big girl pants and sturdy running shoes (just in case), and head out into the wild!
